Call for Proposals

2019-2020 POD Network Grant Program

Deadline: May 5, 11:59PM EST

The purpose of the POD Network Research Grant Program is to promote a greater culture of evidenced-based research designed to contribute new knowledge in the fields of faculty, instructional, and organizational development, including the preparation of future faculty. Proposed research may be carried out within an existing program, or as part of a new initiative.

Proposals due: Sunday, May 5, 11:59pm EST

For the 2019-2020 award period, the Core Committee has made a total of $12,000 available to fund projects in the following categories:

POD Network Early Researcher Grant: The purpose for this new line of funding is to support POD Network members who are initiating their first research in an area related to teaching and learning, or to broader educational or organizational development. This includes seasoned researchers from other disciplines who have become POD Network members, but who have not received external funding or published research related to the aforementioned areas of focus. We also encourage applications from those who have not had a research program before and are looking to enter into one. $4,000 has been allocated for funding Early Researcher proposals, and applicants may request $500-$2,000.

POD Network Research Grant: The purpose for this sustained line of funding is to support POD Network members who have research experience in an area related to teaching and learning, or to broader educational or organizational development that includes publication and possibly external funding. Funding may be used to initiate research in a new area, or expand / extend research already in progress, including research supported by other external funding. $8,000 has been allocated for funding POD Network Research Grants, and we seek to award two proposals up to $4000 each.
